Anybody get on the Eastern Mich pick, im feeling good bout it

 Not betting this game, but I like the Eastern Mich pick.  Heck they should actually be the favorite in this game.  That's kinda what scares me.  Almost seems too good.

I agree.
 BALL STATE is 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite and only 1- 9 ATS in their last 10 home games as a favorite .

They should still cover this thing.  Clearly twice as much talent.  All Sc needs to do is pound the ball and quit giving up the big play.  Obvious Vandy can't drive the length of the field.  Or have shown nothing to indicate they can.

I have always thought The visor a pretty sharp coach, but no clue what they are thinking out there. Run the ball.  That backup QB has looked horrible.

I'm thinking that something is wrong with Lattimore. No other reason not to give that dude the ball at least 39 times this game.

South Carolina was 20% on 3rd downs until that last run by shaw. All Vandy had to do was hold them, Spurrier would have been forced to kick a FG, and we cover. WOW....

It looked like they didn't have time to complete a 5-step drop...they'd be 2-4 steps into it ans a Vandy player would be in the backfield.

Yep or even on the drive before if the SC guy holds onto the ball on 3rd and 11 it's a Jimmie field goal or TD.

Oh well.

Well by te looks of it I may have gone 0-2 on opening day.  Find out in the morning.  No way I am staying up to watch all of this late game.  Wash St may not stop Byu again all night.

I just wonder how much learning and getting better they can do by November. Cuz if they don't do a lot of it, that game will be a nothing more than a tune-up

Wow, what a crazy night! Sorry for those who lost on the SC game, cant believe they didnt cover. 

Just wanted to point this out... On the site im on, there is a futures bet for the Arkansas vs Mississippi State game on November 17th.  You can get Arkansas at -6.5. I plan on making that bet on Sunday.  Will Clinton I know you are on the same site, it's under the 2012 NCAA Football Games of the Year.  I know it's very far out, but I think thats a really attractive line.

I think you win this by at least a game and a half.

On the Hawaii game, I had a wise man once tell me he bet every game over a 45 point spread. Said it was way to hard to score more than 45, and even harder to hold the other team after you have scored 45. If I had a gun to my head, I would bet Hawaii, but USC, especially with Lane Kiffen, could put up 65 in most games.

The reason I dont think USC covers is that they arent very deep on Offense and they can't afford any injuries.  I think Kiffin gets a comfortable lead and then rests his starters, runs the ball and manages the clock.  Just don't think he will run the score up too much.  we will see

I'll be shocked if Bama doesn't crush Michigan.  Of course I have been wrong before!  But, right this second I'm pretty confident on this one.  Betting a Saban coached Bama is never a BAD bet in my mind...honestly I don't think I have ever lost betting on them to cover the past 3 years (thats about how long I have been betting football).

Agree with you on Bama crushing Michigan, the 14pt spread was too much for me to bite though...  I definitely like Bama in this one, just not gonna bet it
